Adwen Knit Cape

IMG_0246 Level of dif culty: intermediate to advanced This cosy and stylish cape is a large project in Blacker Classic Aran yarn, designed by Judy Furlong. While not dif cult, the garment has big cables and comes in several parts to be assembled, so needs attention to detail. It would be a good project to develop new skills in structured garments, but mainly it’s a lovely warm, attractive garment of cable and moss stitch panels, with saddle shoulders and a wonderful big cowl neck. It comes in ve sizes. If you want to try out the cable panel designs rst, you could consider a shawl or throw or even just a tunic … but this cape is well worth the work!

Spin dry. Do not tumble dry. Spread to dry on a towel or drying rack, hand pressing garment to shape and correct size. Garments may be hung to dry on a hanger or over a clothes or ceiling airer once they have been spun, but with a hanger you may get hanger marks at the shoulders and a larger garment may “grow” if too damp before hanging; and with bars you should move a little several times to avoid marks. Stocking stitch and lace garments may bene t from light pressing (never press rib areas as they will lose their stretch!). Store folded.
